A new poll from the Los Angeles Times shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton by three points but you can tell from their reportage that they hated to admit it.
Just look at their headline:
As Clinton stumbles, Trump takes an apparent slim lead in new tracking poll
As the presidential race moves into a key two-week period, with the announcement of running mates and the party conventions, Donald Trump has taken an apparent slim lead over Hillary Clinton, based on strong support from white voters, particularly men.
That finding, from a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak tracking poll, a new survey that begins publication Friday, marks a significant shift in a race that most polls indicated Clinton has led since mid-May.
It comes amid a flurry of other surveys, both nationally and in battleground states, that show support for the former secretary of State declining since last week when FBI Director James B. Comey characterized her handling of classified material while in that office as “extremely careless.” Comey also said her conduct and that of her aides did not clearly violate the law or warrant prosecution…
In the new tracking poll, through Thursday night, Trump led Clinton 43% to 40%. That’s within the poll’s margin of error of 3 points in either direction, meaning the apparent lead could be the result of chance.
As Trump does better, this type of thing will become more commonplace at other media outlets.
They can’t understand why he’s winning and they hate it.
